Hello International Gauchos!

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is excited to announce the official launch of UCSBGlobal...right now!
Thank you for being so patient while our office was closed last week (February 1 - 5, 2021.) We were hard at work implementing the transition to our brand new platform. We are back open and ready to serve you!
Because this is a new platform and system, we thank you in advance for your continued patience as we continue to work out any issues. Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any trouble accessing the system.
Please keep reading to find out what has changed, why, and some video tutorials and instructions to help you get started.

We're glad you asked!✨ It's our new online platform for International Gauchos to use when submitting, reviewing, and tracking requests made to OISS.
What is an OISS request? In the past, requests to OISS were made by downloading OISS Forms and emailing them to OISS for approval. (Requests = anything that must be processed and/or approved by an OISS advisor.) This process has changed. Starting today, all requests will be submitted online using e-forms on UCSBGlobal!
Why did OISS make this change? UCSBGlobal will revolutionize the way you interact with our office, and simplify life for everyone! Starting today, you no longer have to email paper/PDF request forms to the OISS office. Instead, you'll simply log into UCSBGlobal with your UCSB Net ID and submit e-form requests online. This can be done from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are confident that you will love this new system!
Here are some instructions and video tutorials to help you get started:
1. How To Log Into UCSBGlobal
Links to the UCSBGlobal platform are easily found on the OISS Website at oiss.ucsb.edu. You can find links in three places:
  1. The yellow "UCSBGlobal" link on the very top navigation of the website.
  2. Under the "Quicklinks" drop-down menu.
  3. From the UCSBGlobal information page.
Once you navigate to the UCSBGlobal Platform, you'll simply log in using your UCSB Net ID and password. Easy!
Watch this video tutorial that'll show you the steps:
2. How To Submit An E-form Request
Once you've logged into UCSBGlobal, you can submit requests to the OISS office using e-forms. After you click "submit," you'll receive an automatic email letting you know that OISS received your request, and how long it'll take an advisor to approve it. You'll get another email notification when your request has been approved by an advisor.
(International students: not sure which e-form to use? Visit our Student Requests Overview page for help! You can also contact oiss@sa.ucsb.edu for support.)
Watch this video that will show you an example of how it's done:
3. How To Track + Review Requests
At any time, you can log into UCSBGlobal and see a list of notifications you have received, and requests that you've submitted. You'll be able to review the e-forms that you've submitted, as well as track the progress of any requests. (This means that you can see the status of whether the request has been approved, denied, or is pending approval at the OISS office.)

We hope that you will love UCSBGlobal as much as we do. When in doubt, check UCSBGlobal for any e-forms related to a request or messages from OISS!  Any UCSBGlobal notifications will appear on your UCSBGlobal homepage, so we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the system. We will constantly be finding ways to streamline processes and utilize this technology to benefit you!  Please feel free to provide feedback so we can continue to improve our services. Don't hesitate to contact us with your questions and feedback.
